In­dia US to share mil­i­tary lo­gis­tics

Cargo Talk - - News -

In­dia and the US agreed ‘in prin­ci­ple’ on a lo­gis­tics ex­change deal to en­able both mil­i­taries to use each other’s as­sets and bases for re­pair and the re­plen­ish­ment of sup­plies. The Lo­gis­tics Ex­change Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment (LEMOA) was the high­light of U.S. De­fence Sec­re­tary Ash Carter’s three-day visit to In­dia in April 2016. Both sides agreed to set up a new bi­lat­eral Mar­itime Se­cu­rity Di­a­logue be­tween of­fi­cials from their de­fence and for­eign af­fairs min­istries.

LEMOA is a tweaked ver­sion of the Lo­gis­tics Sup­port Agree­ment (LSA), which fa­cil­i­tates the pro­vi­sion of lo­gis­ti­cal sup­port, sup­plies and ser­vices be­tween the US mil­i­tary and the armed forces of part­ner coun­tries on a re­im­bursable ba­sis.
